    They're being played.

    The FedGov insist that you invest your money or play hefty taxes on those monies. Unless you buy precious metals, you are at the mercy of the market.

What it means is that the governments of these states have become corrupt, and the people of these states have become too cowardly and apathetic to hold their public servants properly accountable.

    Fair enough...your opinion.

    I'm all for the 2nd Amendment, but when one commits a criminal act while in possession of a firearm, I believe they don't deserve that Amendment's considerations.

    Punish the criminal for the criminal act; not for a legitimate exercise of a Constitutional right, especially a right away from which the Constitution so clearly and strongly tells government to keep its filthy hands.

    Treason is a "white collar crime"... so yes.

    Nope.The death penalty should only be used for 1st degree murder, treason, desertion in a time of war and maybe some extreme rare circumstances like if someone knowingly infected the public with a dangerous or crippling disease or some other similar situation.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    No, there is no real reason to expand the use of the death penalty to other crimes when we have too much question on the effectiveness of the punishment where it is used now.

    I agree that there is no reason to expand the use of the death penalty, but I could definitely see it happening. I can definitely see the Republican controlled Congress expanding it to crimes that don't result in someone's death such as tax evasion or fraud. The US is becoming more conservative each year, so it could happen.
